ED: In her 12 years at the CDC, she has received 12 awards for outstanding performance on projects and programs, according to her bio on Emory University's Biological and Biomedical Sciences website. Lindsey earned her doctorate in immunology and molecular pathogenesis from the university in 1998, a year before she began work at the CDC.Lindsey is the deputy director for the Laboratory Science Policy and Practice Program Office at the CDC, according to her biography on the agency's website. She holds a Ph.D. in immunology, had worked as a senior researcher in the CDC's bioterrorism program, where she oversaw the re-allocation of $1.5 billion in funds. She later switched to the centers' HIV/AIDS prevention unit, according her professional bio.
Heck with all those credentials we should not be so quick to judge! We do not know the whole story. This may very well have been legitimate research! (Tongue in cheek black humour, sorry I could not resist)
“Authorities also charged Lindsey’s live-in boyfriend, Thomas Joseph Westerman, 42, with two counts of child molestation.“The two are accused of ‘immoral and indecent” sexual acts involving a 6-year-old …“The bestiality charge says Lindsey ‘did unlawfully perform or submit to any sexual act with an animal.’”Between January and August last year, Dr. Lindsey and her boyfriend allegedly involved the child during sex, and DeKalb County police claim they discovered photographs of Lindsey performing sex acts on a couple of her pets.Some of you may wonder why I’ve chosen to discuss this story. Some may think it’s in poor taste and doesn’t belong in a newsletter about health.However, I believe it’s relevant to be aware that someone in charge of your child’s health is allegedly engaged in child abuse.Her actions raise serious questions in my mind about her level of concern for the health and well-being of children in general.
“Thorsen was a leading member of a Danish research group that wrote several key studies supporting CDC’s claims that the MMR vaccine and mercury-laden vaccines were safe for children. Thorsen’s 2003 Danish study reported a 20-fold increase in autism in Denmark after that country banned mercury based preservatives in its vaccines. His study concluded that mercury could therefore not be the culprit behind the autism epidemic.“His study has long been criticized as fraudulent since it failed to disclose that the increase was an artifact of new mandates requiring, for the first time, that autism cases be reported on the national registry. This new law and the opening of a clinic dedicated to autism treatment in Copenhagen accounted for the sudden rise in reported cases rather than, as Thorsen seemed to suggest, the removal of mercury from vaccines.“Despite this obvious chicanery, CDC has long touted the study as the principal proof that mercury-laced vaccines are safe for infants and young children. Mainstream media, particularly the New York Times, has relied on this study as the basis for its public assurances that it is safe to inject young children with mercury ~ a potent neurotoxin ~ at concentrations hundreds of times over the U.S. safety limits.”
“From February 2004 through June 2008, says the DOJ indictment, Thorsen allegedly submitted over a dozen fraudulent invoices requesting reimbursement for expenses that were fabricated.“Interestingly, these allegedly fraudulent invoices were signed by a laboratory section chief at the CDC, indicating that someone inside the CDC was either duped by Thorsen or potentially involved in the alleged fraud.“…This is the great untold story of an alleged criminal ring operating inside the CDC, with the purpose of falsifying research that would ‘disprove’ any links between vaccines and toxic side effects.”
